Happy New Year!
Another year has come to a close, and as the clock struck midnight many of us resolved to change a thing or two in our lives. Lose some that extra weight, get back in the habit of going to the gym, and finally plan that trip to Nepal to climb Everest…But what about a New Year’s resolution for business?
As we look ahead to 2019 I doubt there are any of us who can’t find an area of your business in which we could strive to improve. I am not talking about a huge corporate retreat to determine the allocation of resources or direction of manpower, just a few small things that YOU personally could do. Reorganize those files so things are easier to find? Take the time to read a business periodical to stay on top of changes and gather leads? Create a contest to tap into valuable employee suggestions?
On to that list, why not add resolving to make the most of the events and networking opportunities offered by your local Chamber of Commerce. You are already a member, so come on out and PARTICIPATE! Share tips and gather information from other successful business people while you enjoy an informative luncheon. Encourage referrals by letting other Chamber members know who you are and what you do. Improve the quality of life in your community by volunteering a little of your time and talent toward one of the many events sponsored by the Chamber.
These small things are easy to do, but just like that first aerobics class or that book on mountain climbing, they can go a long way in helping you reach your overall goals. Happy New Year to you all.
